The International Code Council (ICC) and the Society of Fire Protection Engineers (SFPE) have developed the Code Officials’s Guide to Performance-Based Design Review to assist code officials and others who review performance-based fire protection designs. Unlike other guides on performance-based fire protection design, which are written for an engineering audience, this guide is intended for use by people with experience in building and fire codes, but who may not possess a detailed knowledge of fire protection engineering or performance-based design.
The guide is the work of the SFPE Task Group on Performance-Based Design Review, a 19 member, volunteer committee representing jurisdictions, fire departments, engineers, risk management representatives and ICC staff.
To purchase a copy of the Code Officials’s Guide to Performance-Based Design Review, visit www.iccsafe.org or www.sfpe.org.
